Are you in Phase 1? Click here and enter your address.

The South East Kelowna Irrigation District (SEKID) is taking another step in the move toward meeting mandatory provincial water quality standards and ratepayers' demands for higher quality water.


Taking into account the feedback received from ratepayers since the Water Quality Improvement Project (WQIP) was introduced in 2012, trustees have developed a feasible funding plan that avoids borrowing by constructing the new system in two phases. Read More ».

2015 Irrigation Season

 

District staff now have all of the metered irrigation services turned on and ready to go. The exceptions include services that require repair or do not have an isolation valve in proper working order. It is manadatory for all irrigation connections to have an isolation valve downstream of the irrigation meter and it is the owner's responsibility to make sure that valve is working properly. Staff have been instructed to leave services without a working isolation valve off until repairs have been made.

The Board of Trustees have determined that the 2015 irrigation allotment will be 2.25 acre feet per acre of water rights. Note that we anticipate the runoff from this years snow pack to be low and urge all landowners to think about their water use and conserve as much as possible. Staff will be on the lookout for water waste and will be enforcing the irrigation bylaw provisions designed to minimize water waste.
